In November, we celebrated TELLABRATION!: a week of stories and storytelling. Among the activities was a short-short story contest. Children ages 8-12 were invited to write stories of 55 words or less, and each site choose the best story from their submissions to win a Folkmanis puppet! Here are the winning stories (to see any entry larger, just click on the photo):
Jennifer D. is a Senior Librarian of Youth Services and the San Rafael Branch of Pasadena Library. When she was young, she was once grounded for reading too much. Things haven’t changed much since then and she loves escaping into a good story. When she’s not reading she enjoys watching old musicals, scouring flea markets, taking way too many photos and letterpressing. If she could have any pet she wanted she would have a wombat or a manatee.
